Thespian State Festival

Jan. 16 & 17 the new Helena High School Thespian Troupe #8105 had their first ever visit to the State Thespian Festival at Samford University. The troupe was only notified the week before that it had received a grant to be able to attend the festival and so the students had to hurry to get ready. The Thespian festival is different that the Trumbauer festival in that it focuses more on the education of students in Theater than in the competition of Theater. Below are some pictures detailing the amazing trip we all took.

Later on the last day we had the tech challenge where two of our own competed in the individual event. The pictures below were taken from their competition.

This event was followed by the Improv Face-Off where 5 students combined with kids from other schools to see which group was the best at improv.

After the Face-Off we all took a lovely dinner at Mr. Wangs in Wildwood for a group meal and then came back for the award ceremony where Emily D and Andrea A both won awards for tech challenge and Improv Face-Off.
